Ah, yeah, of course. And it should be easy, because there is already
support for regexes in the IncludeCategories option. However, the
configuration file was intended for clang-format >= 4 (when I added
the file, the intention was to make it usable as easily as possible,
i.e. taking into account the availability of clang-format in distros).

Actually, if we were to change clang-format and then require in the
kernel the latest release, we could go a bit further and add the
missing features needed to match the kernel style almost completely. I
have been trying to allocate some time to start that project in my
backlog, but... :-)
